In May 1897 the  sailing ship 'Duncow' had a near miss off Cape du Couedic, Kangaroo Island. Laden with 1,200,000 super feet of mining timber from NW America, she dropped anchors to ride out a storm. Threatening to run aground, the captain and crew abandoned ship, and eventually made shore.  The Tug 'Yatala' was sent from Adelaide, collected the crew and went on to effect salvage. The 'Duncow' was found riding safely at anchor. 

The crew were placed back on board, and 'Duncow' made her destination at Port Pirie on 5 June 1897. 

This book is a report of the ship 'Duncow's' voyage, and it takes a look at two newspaper reports about it, as well as reports from the crew, the master's report, and some extracts from the ship's log. 

This is a number 007 out of a limited printing of 400 numbered and is signed by the author. 

Condition: Please note, this book is secondhand, but is in excellent condition, although is does have a name stamp in the back.
